Formation of BARK

Billy, family and friends decided to formalise their operations through forming and registering an organisation. Bark has been operating in Zimbabwe since 2016, however, it was formerly registered in December 2018 and currently going through UK charity status.

The objective of the BARK is to work with local organisations, individuals and programmes to promote sports provision in marginalised communities and early childhood and junior education.

Actions

BARK’s work includes shipping clothes, shoes, and sports equipment from the UK to Zimbabwe, organising sports events ad tournaments, arrange monthly trips and visits, and raise money through the BARK Scholarship fund to help pay for children’s schools fees.

BARK is also able to create employment, improve recreational activities, impact rural and peri-urban education, volunteering at homes, events and in activities such as clean up campaigns.
